Since the initial snowfall in the Kaghan Valley last November, the MNJ road has been impassable to all traffic.

Bhittani assured that visitors can now access Naran, with expectations that the road leading up to Babusar Top will be cleared within a week, thereby reinstating traffic flow between KP and GB.

Regarding transportation, heavy landslides in the Ghanool area of Balakot, which had halted traffic for over 42 hours, have been completely removed, allowing unrestricted traffic movement along the route.

Efforts are also underway to clear the route connecting Naran to Saiful Muluk Lake, enabling tourists to visit the lake in the coming days.

Bhittani extended a warm welcome to tourists exploring the scenic Kaghan Valley, ensuring that all necessary precautions are being implemented to guarantee their safety and comfort during their stay.

Furthermore, he disclosed plans to gradually activate police posts along the Kaghan to Babusar Top route as more areas become accessible, ensuring comprehensive security measures for visitors.
